What’s happening in June 2014

Things are finally warming up in Peterborough and so are the events.  Every month we are trying to highlight three events we think are unique, new or cool and this month we would like to feature a cool arts/crafts fair, a music festival and the start of the Peterborough Players summer season.

Saturday, June 7th at the Peterborough Townhouse: OK, so what’s so unique about an arts/crafts fair?  “*broke” has the philosophy that art should be for everyone.  Thus every item for sale by the artists costs less than $50.  I think that’s pretty cool and at the last show we found the perfect gift for our niece…a hand-crafted ocarina necklace made by a local artist.  Walk around, there is something for everyone!

June 13th, 17th and 22nd: One of newest additions to the arts and music scene in the Monadnock Region is the Electric Earth Concert Series.  Now in its third season, EEC is a classical music series focused on bringing great classical music performances to our region.  In June alone there will be three concerts: one featuring a look at Bach’s solo violinist works, a second featuring folk music artist Tim Eriksen and a third a concert on the “Green” in Jaffrey featuring the works of Schubert.

June 25th – 30th: This actually rolls into July as well but the Peterborough Players are opening their season with a one woman comedy called “Family Secrets”.  This actress portrays five different family members hilariously revealing the family’s secrets.  If you are interested in coming to one of these performances, check out our Peterborough Players Package.
